The Black Rose Anti-Material Rifle is a custom rifle Rose Ironhart-Pine designed especially for her wife Sarah Pine in YE 40. It had a limited run produced for sale as a premium item by Section 6. However, in YE 42, was brought back in full and continually produced by Black Wing Enterprises, still as a commercially premium rifle.
In YE 39, Rose Ironhart-Pine wanted to create a rifle that her wife would get excellent use out of and meet her high performance standards. Therefore, after over a week - and with lots of love - she created the Black Rose, a .50cal rail assisted anti-material rifle, and presented it to her wife Sarah Pine, who accepted the now prized possession with joy.
Multiple weapons technology advancements were made in the construction of the weapon, including a quad-rail system that allowed lower voltages and higher amperages to be used, requiring less actual power to impart kinetic force on a round, and produce high velocity with a short barrel.
In YE 43, the NDC Ground Forces "Duskerian Legion" adopted this weapon as its anti-materiel rifle for troops not using powered armor.
Here is the craftsmanship information of this custom rifle.
The Black Rose is a rugged and angular beauty. Every part is new and clearly handcrafted with care, precision, and quality. The barrel is long and ends in the front at a hexagonal muzzle break. The body is a combo of rectangular and hexagonal shapes. Where the barrel meets the receiver is the recoil mitigation system and gas block; next is the receiver, which has a hexagonal shape except for where the bolt and charging handle are located, which looks more rectangular. The lower portion of the weapon is rectangular and features an elegant looking box magazine with capacity lighting that displays the current round level on the sides of the mag via how high the light is filled. Atop the receiver is a very advanced scope and a high-quality digital display; finally, the weapon's stock is somewhat blocky and comes with a rounded buffer pad to rest against the user's shoulder when aiming.
